Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC (RBGPF.PK,RB.L) reported first-quarter revenue of 2.64 billion pounds, an increase of 15%, on reported basis, from last year. The Group said it is on track to achieve fiscal 2017 net revenue target of 3% LFL growth. The Mead Johnson acquisition is progressing well and continues to expect completion by the end of third-quarter.

The Group noted that the Indian government is planning to implement a Goods and Services Tax from 1 July 2017.
